Step Up For The Arc 2017

The Annual Walkathon of The Arc of New Jersey and its Local County Chapters

Step Up For The Arc is an annual statewide initiative of The Arc of New Jersey, with walkathons held locally by every county chapter. It's a fun, healthy and easy way to support people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. If you wish to participate or make a donation at the local county level*, please contact the local county chapter in your area.
